We’ve filed these bizarre contact lenses under “Football Gadgets”. They’re certainly striking – if you’ll pardon the football pun!
These cool-looking contact lenses were manufactured by a German optician, Stephanie Berndt, to celebrate the forthcoming football World Cup.
Our sports coach always used to shout; “Keep your eye on the ball!” but with these lenses it’s more a case of “Keep the ball on your eye”.
The contact lenses, modelled here by Stefanie herself, are available for just $54 (including another pair with an image of the German flag). The only problem for me is that my eyes tested OK at the last appointment, so I guess I can’t wear them for this World Cup. Another thing’s at the back of my mind: can you actually see properly when you’re wearing them?
Unfortunately, Stefanie doesn’t have a website at this time, so you’ll have to pop over to Munich in person to get hold of the set. I’m sure there’ll be a big queue this summer.
